My heart was blessed... by the sound of music
I had the privilege of watching a charming rendition of The Sound of Music presented on its opening night at The Teatro at Montecasino in Fourways. The feeling of anticipation as the lights dimmed for the start of the show was brilliantly magnified by the orchestra, directed by Louis Zurnammer.
The story is told of Maria Rainer who is asked to leave the Nuremberg Abbey to become governess to the 7 Von Trapp children shortly before Austria is invaded by Germany.
Maria has never been a governess before and the children are not particularly keen on having a governess which allows for some very funny and heart warming scenario’s. This is a beautiful story filled with love, humour and of course music and song. Some of the most memorable songs of all time are sung in this musical, including “Do Rae Mi”, “My Favourite Things” and, of course, “The Sound of Music”.
Bethany Dickson, who played the role of Maria, put on an outstanding performance. Her love of music was so apparent in this show and it looked to me like she was having a tremendous amount of fun. Bethany has an incredible talent of drawing
